Q: Would you be a better center fielder for the Nats or point guard for the Wizards?
A: Hitting a baseball is nearly impossible at the professional level. That’s why we should forgive Pete Rose. I’d put him on the $3 bill if I could.
Q: How do you handle stressful situations and working under pressure?
A: The first job I ever had I got paid $3.35 an hour to mop puke (and worse) out of a McDonald’s bathroom. All jobs since then have paid more and were far more fun. Any time I feel stress at work I think this is still more fun than that.
Q: What was the first Grateful Dead song to really flip your wig?
A: I’ve always been fascinated by Friend of the Devil. It was playing in the car when i was little and my mom turned it off. Is it wicked? Is it super loving? Who knows? Recently I heard Tom Petty cover it in LA and I thought it was fantastic.
